Men arrested at Philadelphia Starbucks appear on GMA

By Patricia Madej,

The two black men arrested at Starbucks in Philadelphia last week — an event that sparked national outrage, public apologies and a racial-bias training program at the coffee chain’s 8,000 U.S. cafes — called for change in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America that aired Thursday morning.

Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, who have laid low since a video showing the arrests a week ago went viral, spoke with anchor Robin Roberts detailing the events that unfolded. They were accompanied on the show by their attorney, Stewart Cohen, who said his clients were engaged in mediation with Starbucks with a retired federal judge serving as mediator.
